On 31st march, the Southern Bosses’ Association (SCO) is satisfied to report the terrific opening of another office in Arrangement Two Domain in Brandon, Manitoba.
According to SCO Grand Chief Jerry Daniels, “while our founding mandate has always been to represent our 34 Anishinaabe and Dakota Nations and more than 83,000 citizens across what is now southern Manitoba,” “most of our service delivery has been centralized in Treaty One Territory.” We will be able to continue this crucial work and provide better service to the leadership and citizens of our western Nations by opening an office in the traditional territory of the Dakota people as well as Treaty Two Territory.
At the Brandon office, Jordan’s Principle, Nation Rebuilding, and Justice and Rights will all be represented.
Chief Lindsay Bunn Jr. of the Birdtail Sioux Dakota Nation stated, “I want to acknowledge and thank SCO’s leadership, for giving my Nation better access to programming and services.” Our collective objectives of safeguarding, preserving, promoting, and enhancing our inherent rights, languages, customs, and traditions can only be accomplished with the assistance of this new office.
The new SCO office in Brandon will make it easier for people from the Birdtail Sioux Dakota Nation, Canupawakpa Dakota Nation, Gambler First Nation, Keeseekoowenin Ojibway First Nation, Tootinaowaaziibeeng Treaty Reserve, Rolling River First Nation, Skownan First Nation, and Waywayseecappo First Nation to get in touch with the organization. Our urban relations while living and studying in Manitoba’s second-largest city will also appreciate it.
SCO has likewise as of late settled invested grants for understudies going to Brandon College and Assiniboine Junior college.
Grand Chief Daniels added, “So much of what we do is rooted in discussions, consultations, and ultimately collaboration that improves outcomes for all of our peoples.” I eagerly anticipate how this new location will assist in realizing those objectives.
